Dishwasher Drawers 2022

Drawer Dishwasher Review

Dishwasher drawers are now replacing standard dishwashers in many homes, so our team developed this drawer dishwasher review. The convenient sliding drawer access, energy efficiency and thoroughness of many drawer models is drawing many homeowners to choose them over standard dishwashers when they replace their deficient dishwasher or upgrade their kitchen. At Elite, we carry several models and styles of both single drawer dishwashers and double drawer dishwashers.

Double drawer dishwashers allow you the convenience of running two separate load cycles at the same time. You have the option of putting your pots and pans in one drawer on a heavy wash cycle and your fine China in another on a delicate cycle.  Dishwashers are a necessity for any modern household, according to many lifestyle bloggers. All told, they save time and energy within every kitchen. They also ensure that the dishes are clean and sanitized before they go back into the cupboards, on the semi-clean wash towel lining your countertop!

Dishwasher Drawers:  More Costly Than Regular Dishwashers

A drawer dishwasher (also known as a draw dishwasher) is typically more expensive than a regular dishwasher. The reason being is because you have to take it out and use it in a room with a sink. The reason for this is that it comes with more features and space. The cost of a drawer dishwasher can range from $800-$1000.

The DCS Drawer is a new product that offers more than just a place to wash dishes. It is the next generation of dishwashers with three drawers for flexibility in loading and unloading.

The first drawer holds tall items, such as larger utensils and wine glasses, while the second drawer holds silverware and small bowls. The third drawer is used for miscellaneous items, like pots and pans, which can be loaded face down to keep them from getting dirty or scratched.

While the DCS Drawer does not have an automatic drying function, it will reduce the need for towels because users can dry their hands on the front of the unit while loading it with dishes.

Final Thoughts

Elite Appliance also offers DCS DishDrawers, plus another Energy Star rated dishwasher that relies on just two gallons of water per drawer per load. However, DCS DishDrawers have a slightly smaller capacity, fitting 12 place settings in two drawers as opposed to 14.  Enjoy our other dishwasher posts to complete your appliance research phase, including KitchenAid and Whirlpool!   

DCS DishDrawers offer nine cycles, including eco-friendly options and a delay start option for up to 12 hours. The dish racks are adjustable and feature fold-down tines. DCS DishDrawers rely on their patented Smart Drive™ to sense load size and administer the cycle accordingly.
